Need to install Joomla on CentOS 7 running XAMPP.

This is my fault, I brought up a new VM of CentOS 7. So I need to install Joomla all over again.

http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Linux/Q_28523446.html   <--- However I am unable to make the solution work again.

I am running the latest versions of CentOS 7 and Xampp.
I have downloaded the latest versions of the Joomla Linux Module installer (and the full Joomla Linux installer).

These 2 commands do nothing once executed:
chmod +x bitnami-joomla-3.3.6-0-module-linux-installer.run
./bitnami-joomla-3.3.6-0-module-linux-installer.run

The only difference between my previous effort and my new one is: I used KDE desktop before, and now I am just using the default CentOS GUI now.

Need help!!! Thank you.

yum install epel-release
then install joomla using default web stack
yum search joomla

Thank you again Gheist very much appreciated.

I did "yum install epel-release" worked fine.

I am unsure how to install joomla using default web stack though.
Would you mind walking me through it?

yum install php
yum install mariadb-server
yum install httpd
yum install php-mysql php-xml

1) version - check
2)  run at least mysql_secure_installation
3) v2.4
4)  zlib is included in php core

now unzip or git-clone joomla somewhere under /var/www and make a site description in a new file in /etc/httpd/conf.d

Follow the rest of the guide - create DB, connect it etc.

EPEL was not needed so far.
